Reviewed by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite

In a fantastic new book by authors Jason Miller and Mark DiSanto, Foundational Weight Training: A Practical Guide for the Trainer, Coach and Barbell Enthusiast, readers are treated to a practical, useful and highly intelligent guide when weight training. Divided into six understandable chapters that flow easily from topics including intensity and volume, set and repetition structure, training complexes, advanced strategies and weekly organization of training, this book is truly one that can be used by beginners as well as those who are more advanced in their knowledge of weight training and the use of barbells. As the title indicates, it's very likely that training coaches would also be able to get a great deal of use out of this book, especially with the tips and tools provided for the weekly organization of training.

I very much enjoyed Foundational Weight Training. Authors Jason Miller and Mark DiSanto have done a complete job in providing the reader with all that they need to get an excellent start to a very useful practice. It's clear that the authors have a great deal of experience in this field, and that will be much appreciated. I found myself making many notations as I read through this book, and notes to myself to return to certain pages, that is how useful this information was. Any reader who has an interest in weight training and barbell use, no matter their experience level, should definitely read Foundational Weight Training: A Practical Guide for the Trainer, Coach and Barbell Enthusiast. I am pleased to highly recommend this book.
